What I like most about Ranchview is how they always help whenever you need help. They make really fun activities like pep rally’s, student vs teacher game, etc. The counselors always try to do everything they can to help us with anything we need and plan for our education. They make presentations that show us the opportunities that we have and give us guides on how to achieve those goals that we want to accomplish. The students always get along and try their hardest to keep their grades up. We are proud of our school. Together we bring our school to greatness, victory and success. Wolf Pack Pride!

My overall experience at Ranchview was very positive. I was fortunate enough to have many amazing teachers who went above and beyond to genuinely connect with their students and help us succeed outside of their classrooms. I also love how many organizations/clubs there are for students to join because I am someone who loves to be involved and believes it's important. My favorite part about my experience was the social culture because we were very supportive of our arts programs/performances, sports events and out traditions like homecoming.Academically, I believe that senior year, the faculty does a good job at preparing students for college however I would like to see more push for students to take dual credit courses and possibly looking at offering AP courses along with IB courses.
Ranchview High School has great diversity with cultures from across the globe. Being able to coexist with people with different beliefs and heritage is an experience I will never forgot. I get to learn about various countries and cultures around the world without stepping outside of Ranchview High School. The one thing, however, that I would change would be the lack of teachers' ability to recognize what makes students engaged in their education. Many teachers simply make us read or lose our minds do packets. Teachers need to make students excited about learning through different methods of teaching such as showing videos and have debates to get us involved. We are the future of this country and world and in order for us to be successful and lead this world to a safer and healthier existence, it is important to educate the young people of society.
